Ok one more question? Will an ORP throw a CEL?

If so is there a way around getting the check engine light if one pops up?

You say MIL, is that a inline resistor or something you can buy to lower the readings to fool the computer? Or is it something that comes with a ORP?

We cant do that on my Audi because the cars too smart, thats what I ask?

I appreciate the responses. I am a veteran on many Audi sites. I am actually a mechanic myself as well on the side. So the forum thing and car thing are like second nature to me.

Thanks Guys,
Matt

u can't just reset ur battery every few starts that will get annoying. If you just unplug the battery cables, you will continue to get the CEL. You need a tune
